#DearZindagi A Letter to My Life..

“I am writing a letter to life for the #DearZindagi activity at BlogAdda“.

Hello Dear Zindagi,

With aim of writing a letter to you, I recalled few lines from a poem written by famous poet Gulzar :

Hai lau zindagi, zindagi noor hai
Magar ismein jalne ka dastur hai...

Ravayat ye hai ke zindagi gehna hai
Ye heera hai aur, ise chaat-te rehna hai
Ke lamhon mein marne ka dastur hai..

Adhoore se rishton mein palte raho
Adhoore se saanson se chalte raho
Yuhin jeenay jaaney ka dastur hai..

Hai lau zindagi, zindagi noor hai..


How true is that!

My trek so far has been absolutely normal with few ups and downs. And I feel these crests and troughs give a person reasons to live and look forward to every coming morning.  Dear life, with this letter I want to convey my feelings and warmth about this journey over which I am going with you.



Dear life, you gave me most caring parents of this world, who never disappointed me and never failed me when I needed them.  I witnessed a beautiful childhood which was full of fun and enjoyment because of a younger sister and many cousins.

Dear life, you gave me the chance to prove myself as hard working kid who always tried to make her parents and teachers feel proud. Because of your desire, I could break rules of that conservative society who used to support caging girls inside the home. I came out, pursued my professional studies and now doing an ideal job.

Dear life, I can’t thank you more for giving me such a nice husband. You know well that early on our marriage, we faced many hardships and nearness challenges.  But 'we were in love' and soon we realized that those few gloomy and backstage moments eventually made us good performers on front site. My life, you have seen me crying and laughing at the same time. But the best part is, you never let me feel hopeless and that’s why I am living best years of married life now.

Dear life, what can be best than giving me a chance to become a mother. Motherhood has made me a complete woman, really. You gave me a jolly boy who unconditionally loves me. It actually feels so good when I see him growing day by day, showing his naughtiness and caring for me so much. The smallest man in my life is the biggest reason for my happiness you know.

Dear life, I have everything I ever desired for. You have given me everything a girl dreams for.  Now it is my chance to say "thank you" from the bottom of my heart for all this. Thanks a ton for making me happy and contended. I wish coming years that you are going to write for me shall also be full of stars and moons. I don’t fear difficult times but I request you to give me enough strength to deal with them. 

Thank you dear life for giving me fee will to love and to be loved, to make my own decisions, to learn from my mistakes, to laugh when I am happy and to cry when I am sad. Thank you once again for giving me all the vivacity of this world. There are ups and there are downs but still for me Zindagi Gulzar hai..

Love you my Zindagi :)

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

K For Kalpasi - An Unknown Treasure

Good food is really a blessing, isn't it? And as I am talking about those who really go into making an average food to finger licking, I realized our spices undoubtedly do magic with the everyday food. Apart from the basic ingredients and a well-known, trusted recipe, a play of spices and herbs can really lift up a preparation. Every region in India uses spices to make their local food extraordinary. It is only a matter of spices that change the taste of the same Shambhar in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and in north India. We all make Chole but the game of spices do something to what we relish as famous Panjabi Chole.  It is all about the little nuances that go into creating a dish from ordinary to exceptional.

A handful of spices always remain in our kitchens and we know their unique flavors. However, there are a number of spices are little unheard-of. While these form an essential part of a few local innate cuisines in some part of India, the rest of India does not know much about them. O…

The Tradition of Respecting and Celebrating Food

This post is for #BharatKaZaika is a blogging event conducted by #BlogBoosterIndia. 

A story to begin with

After winning the great battle of kurukshetra, Yudhisthira was now king of Hastinapur. And then one day, all of sudden Krishna went to Yudhishithira and started saying in urgency "dadasvannam dadasvannam dadasvannam yudhisthira (“Give food! Give food! Give food! Yudhisthira). As the great battle had affected everyone in the country, food was the first way to start giving relief to the suffering countrymen.  As suggested by Krishna, yudhisthira then organized the great asvamedha-yajna. Mahabharata records an extraordinary celebration of distributing food as a part of the sacred year-long rites and rituals.

Our food heritage

You see, In our country, there is a tradition of respecting and celebrating food. The spirit of classical Indian civilization guided that primary duty of the king is to ensure that none within his domain suffers from hunger. Hence the king ensured that people…
